If you look at the current breakdown of PyPI categories you'll see Mac OS X
is not represented.

  http://www.python.org/pypi?:action=browse

There are trove categories for Mac OS X.

  http://www.python.org/pypi?:action=list_classifiers

Since I know that at least two packages (PythonCard and PyObjC) and probably
many more actually list some of these Mac items on platform and
classifiers...

Platform:  Mac OS X, Windows, Linux
Classifiers:
Environment :: MacOS X :: Aqua
...
Operating System :: MacOS :: MacOS X

...there must be something about PyPI that is not set to show Mac OS X as a
top-level item while browsing. This should be fixed.
